Having reported back in August on the success of London band Guillemots, formed by Birmingham singer-songwriter and composer Fyfe Hutchins (aka Dangerfield), it seems about time for an update.
After being at the centre of a remarkable feeding frenzy among major record labels throughout the summer the band has now signed to Polydor (disappointed suitors included EMI and Sony), while retaining its links to independent label Fantastic Plastic.
Following several months of relentless gigging at small venues around the country - plus a European debut in Amsterdam as part of the London Calling festival - it is about to embark on a prestigious tour of mostly sold-out UK dates supporting Rufus Wainwright.
This tour comes to Birmingham's Symphony Hall a week today (Dec 6) a day after the release of Guillemots' second record, the single Trains to Brazil.
It means that for the first time it will actually be possible to buy a Guillemots record in the shops.
Their limited-edition debut EP I Saw Such Things in My Sleep sold out on the nominal release day of September 5 following extensive radio play, including a track being nominated single of the week by two Radio 1 DJs.
Copies of the 10ins vinyl version (only 300 copies) have been changing hands on Ebay for over £70.
Over the last two weeks Guillemots have also become something of a news story in Brazil, after the BBC put out an interview with the band's Brazilian guitarist, MC Lord Magrao, on its website there.
It has since been recycled by numerous Brazilian websites.
In the interview, Magrao makes a connection between the title of the single Trains to Brazil and the shooting of his compatriot Jean Charles de Menezes in London in July. However, the song itself, which refers to a terrorist bombing, was written by Fyfe as long ago as 2002, originally with the title Life Song.
Meanwhile, interest in the band in the British music business continues to bubble along, with a profile in the current issue of Mojo magazine describing Guillemots as "the most remarkable band in Britain".
This has all happened so quickly that it still hasn't begun recording its first album.
Sessions are planned for early in the New Year.
Meanwhile you can hear live Guillemots radio sessions with Zane Lowe (BBC Radio 1, Wed 7pm) and Marc Riley (BBC Radio 6, Saturday 1pm).
Guillemots play Symphony Hall with Rufus Wainwright next Tuesday (returns only), Trains to Brazil is released on Fantastic Plastic on Monday.
Music by Fyfe Hutchins features in Ex Cathedra's Christmas Music by Candlelight concerts at St Paul's Church, Hockley (December 19-23).
